This week saw the promotion of one of our cadets to the highest rank - that of Cadet Warrant Officer. CWO Ryan Sheppard is the first to achieve the rank for a few years and now assumes the position of Senior Cadet NCO - responsible for leadership over the cadet NCO team - and forms a bridge between the cadets and staff.
The appointment of Cadet Warrant Officers is subject to the approval of Commandant Air Cadets - the head of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets - and is made on the recommendation of the Officer Commanding of the cadet's Wing. CWO Sheppard had an interview with Wg Cdr Kingman - OC No 2 Welsh Wing - late last year.
Congratulations to CWO Sheppard on his appointment and best of luck in his new role!
